Epic MegaJam Game Thread

You can send that separately - just be sure to include the information in your submission.

We’ll have gameplay videos streaming during our Results Livestream. I also hope folks with share their games here once they’re done. Additionally, we’ll post a list of all the submissions, once the deadline has passed.

A download link would be awesomesauce, but YouTube is fine too.

Hi all! It’s 5 am here, and I have to go to my job in 3 hours, but I’m still here in a few minutes away from my bed! 38 hours of hard work, between my payed work and few hours of sleep are finally passed, and they where really fun! Submited my entry, but didn’t recieve any confirmation. Again. Like with houdini license that I didnt get :(. This makes me nervous a bit, but back to my submission:

In the world without Sun, light is the most precious thing. Only human inner light can fight the darkness here. Those who lose their light become shadows.
Player takes on a role of the Lighthunter, a guy who travels through ancient civilizations’ ruins, in search of the light particles, substance that can restore inner light.

And some screenshots:

Later I am planning on making a forum post with complete breakdown of all effects and material tricks I used in this project.

The post with breakdown is here:…ject-breakdown

Sadly I can’t submit my entry. I ran out of time and had too many loose ends. So here is a video, how it would have looked and played like (atleast the mechanics I could implement):

I’m considering finishing it post game jam :).


You were a machine and died/ceased to exist. Now you end up in a limbo, where vile and creepy creatures roam around to drain your light (soul). The limbo itself drains your light, which is your life essence. To be reincarnated in a new machine, your “soul” needs to reach the gates of solitude, before the light runs out. All player attacks are only there to stall the enemies and freeze them temporarily to escape them. However, every skill drains your soul too. To refill your light, you can use light shrines.
At the end there should have been 2 mechanical giants as some kind of a boss fight.

Team Taco made their entry!

We’ve made a VR Game called **Vralhalla **for HTC Vive, where you need to survive sailing through a dangerous ocean! You must collect fuel to keep your torches lit, or the Kraken will kill you!
You control it, by pulling the rope to the sail with the trigger, and push/pull the tiller. Dodge the rocks or your boat will take damage. You can pick up shields to reinforce your boat!

The download link is below. It should be the same as the submission, but I can’t find a way to edit the submission, so on behalf of the team, I hope it was all submitted correctly! :slight_smile:

You are a spelunker who fell through a rock chimney into a dark cave infested with…aliens! Good thing you brought your headlamp and infinite-ammo grenade launcher, like you always do when exploring caves! You quickly find you are not the first, and the last guy to fall in left charcoal markings to navigate by. Essentially one ten-minute level with boss at the end. End screen shows stats and saves best stats for comparison, and lets you restart game or quit. No saved game…if you die you restart. Use Pause menu to quit game (or Alt-F4).

Key bindings are mostly like the Unreal Engine 4 First Person Template:

Jump: space bar or game pad face button bottom or motion controller (L) trigger

Fire: left mouse button or gamepad right trigger or motion controller (R) trigger

Reset VR: (untested with VR/HMD!) R or Motion Controller (L) Grip1

Crouch: C

Pause: Escape or Pause or Global Pause or P, any key resumes or click Resume (or Quit).

Move Forward: W or Up arrow or Right mouse button or Motion controller (L) thumbstick or gamepad left thumbstick Y axis

Move Backward: S or Down arrow or Motion controller (L) thumbstick or gamepad left thumbstick Y axis

Move Right: D or Gamepad left thumbstick X axis or Motion controller (L) thumbstick

Move Left: A or Gamepad left thumbstick X axis or Motion controller (L) thumbstick

Turn Rate: Gamepad right thumbstick X axis or left or right arrow

Turn: Mouse X

Look Up Rate: Gamepad Right Thumbstick Y Axis

Look Up: Mouse Y

Move Up (swim mode): Space bar (same as jump)

Move Down (Swim mode): C (same as crouch)

Wait for the shuttle to dock at the supply depot, then exit the ship and go find/pickup your supplies by pressing “E” when the object is aligned with your reticle. WASD and mouse are used for pawn and camera movement. Press “F” to toggle flying in order to maneuver the zero-G environment, or else this objective will be impossible to complete. Use your flashlight here as well, it’s very dark in outer space. Once you have gathered your supplies, re-enter the shuttle and press “E” while your reticle is hovering over the shiny button to engage the flight system and travel to your next destination. Make sure you’re not flying because there’s a boolian that prevents the player from turning the engine’s on while still in the air. (player must be moving on ground to activate button). Once shuttle has reached the space station, exit ship, restore temporary power to the space station hatch, open the hatch, and enter the station. Now, turn on the backup computers, then toggle your ‘Welding Tool’ and press “Left Mouse” to repair Module 001, Module 002, and Module 003 by pointing at them and holding left mouse. Once these are repaired, you can open the hall way doors. Find the water reservoir room and insert fertilizer into the reservoir, then head to the hydro farm room and plant all 16 pots by pointing your reticle at them and pressing “E”. Turn on the hydro farm computer to switch on the grow lights. Then, head to the main computer room and contact headquarters. Mission success, head back to the shuttle and press “E” to exit mission.
